  1. Another very valuable contribution from a location that most consider too dangerous to travel to nowadays, you rock! Posted 3 years ago
    1. To be honest, I did not feel to comfortable travelling the road south, because it takes a long time and there ar some check points along the way;-). Posted 3 years ago
      1. You mean the checkpoints are dangerous? How? Posted 3 years ago
        1. They are more annoying and time consuming, because the drive to the NP is very long. There is really nothing after you leave Bangui. I would not feel very comfortable ending up in an accident along the road for instance...And driving at night in Africa is not really safe, because everyone walks along the track...

The African forest elephant is a forest-dwelling species of elephant found in the Congo Basin. It is the smallest of the three extant species of elephant, but also the third-largest living terrestrial animal. The African forest elephant and the African bush elephant were considered to be one species until genetic studies showed their relationship is distant.
